Office work, shopping and some sight seeing

Pos: here
Loc: Paramaribo
Acc: Pieter and Nancy’s house

The morning I was busy online as usual, first working on the past days, then looking ahead. From Paramaribo to Cayenne in French Guiana it is actually not too bad, mostly beaches, maybe one night I have to stay on the mud or in the mangroves. I should be there in 12-14 days. After Cayenne, the stretch to Belem in Brazil past the Amazon will be the toughest part of the whole trip, besides maybe 3 or 4 tiny villages providing maybe some firm campground there is simply only mud and mangroves and bugs everywhere for more than 1000 km. Yahoo! The only positive may be that I really eventually will catch some following wind on the stretch almost due south, that’s it…

Pieter took me in the late afternoon first to a well sorted outdoor shop, nice place! I bought a new headlamp, and a small lightweight, but quite solid looking kiddy scoop net to fish around in the shallows for cat fish, jelly fish, sharks, piranhas or whatever may be floating there :-)…actually a nice toy to entertain myself with once a while. Suriname as actually everything to offer what you need, it seems to be a bit more wealthy than Guyana and there is way less trash around which pleases my eye. But both countries have their charm and a lot of friendly people!

We stopped on the way back by the beautiful wooden Christian church, some Mosques, Synagogues and Gurdwaras, the government house and had a peanut soup in a small restaurant by the river. Suriname has something to offer! And the mixture of people and religions are nicely living side by side!

Not much left of this one though...

Social media automation does provide a wide range of advangaes, however, I have personally experience it’s not effective in all the social media platforms such as Facebook. Moreover, I believe social media automation is more effective for bigger sites rather than a small blog. I have experimented with automation and it helped me save time and efforts but on the flip side the click rate, social likes and engagement dropped significantly.
